Abstract :

New chemotherapeutic regimens, stereotactic radiosurgery, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, including cord transplantation and the expansion of biologic therapy with monoclonal antibodies offer hope but may lead to complications rarely seen in the non-oncologic patient. With the advent of these new therapies we have observed an increase in survival of cancer population, which accompanied the evolution of the disease. The scope of this presentation will score major emergencies in oncology that take the patient to the intensive care unit. I will talk about pathophysiology, differential diagnosis, clinical presentation, diagnosis and treatment of hypercalcemia: The most common of the paraneoplastic syndromes, developing in 10% to 30% of all patients with malignancy at some time during their disease course; definition, pathophysiology, classification, prevention and treatment of acute tumor lysis syndrome and also about the same aspects about superior vena cava syndrome.
